Zain Khalid & Elizabeth Nunez: A Conversation
Sunday, November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
In Zain Khalid’s Brother Alive: A Novel, three boys intertwined by circumstance – Dayo, Iseul, and Youssef – are adopted as infants and share a bedroom atop a mosque in Staten Island, New York. Their adoptive father, Imam Salim, carries secrets, and when as adults they follow him on his return to Saudi Arabia, they must decide if they should change who they are to survive or defend their deeply held beliefs. And in Elizabeth Nunez’s Now Lila Knows, Lila Bonnard, a visiting professor from the Caribbean at Vermont’s lily-white Mayfield College, witnesses the fatal shooting of a Black man by the police. Some expect her to be a witness in the case. But speaking out may jeopardize Lila’s position – and more.
